Comedy Central busy developing projects

Animated shows and a series with 'Daily' regular Cenac in works

Comedy Central has bulked up its development slate for 2012, including an untitled project with “Daily Show” correspondent Wyatt Cenac based on public-affairs shows from the 1980s.

Cenac is onboard to write and exec produce, with David Rath of Generate producing.

The three animated shows in development at the net include “Robots,” about inept androids’ failed attempts at world domination, and ShadowMachine’s anthology series “TripTank,” which includes work by “Delocated” creator Jon Glaser and “Mr. Show” co-creator Bob Odenkirk. Another untitled series adapts the “Cyanide and Happiness” webcomics for television.

Also on the slate: 3Arts’ “Gregory Brothers,” a new show featuring the titular digital music team behind “Auto-Tune the News”; and Avalon’s “@Rob Delaney,” a variety show starring comedian Delaney and similar to the net’s hit “Tosh.0.” “Overloaded,” too, takes a comic look at the Internet, focusing on social media.

The Viacom cabler is also developing the single-camera sitcom “Braunger,” based on the life of comic Matt Braunger, and sketch series “Eugene!,” written by and starring Eugene Mirman.

The net is also building shows around comics including Amy Schumer, Anthony Jeselnik and Nathan Felder.
